I live in east Vancouver and I am the branch manager of Vancity’s Collingwood Branch. I want to participate in the challenge to get a better understanding of one of the many different challenges for those living on welfare face and help the cause by raising more awareness to the issue and advocate for change. Aside from little money for food, there are other obstacles for people facing poverty such as low wages, homelessness or lack of affordable housing, lack of affordable child care and other barriers and if you don’t experience it, you don’t understand it.

This is going to be a humbling experience that will only last one week for me but many British Columbians live with it on an on-going basis.
